The next steps in dealing with the crisis in Ukraine will be as much of a challenge for Europe and the United States as they are for Russia and Ukraine. The stakes are high on both sides of this confrontation, which at the moment seems to offer few safe exits.
In their analysis of the crisis published by the German Marshall Fund of the United States, Constanze Stelzenmueller and Daniela Schwarzer offer assessments of both the challenges and choices ahead for all sides in this very fragile arena.
